Just A Little More On The BBC's New Doctor Who Announcement Show

doctorsHere’s what I’ve been led to expect from Sunday night’s show.

  • Zoe Ball.
  • A live studio audience of fans, who were encouraged to come in Doctor Who cosplay.
  • A few previous Doctors as guests, taking part in a discussion of the show’s legacy.
  • The first footage from the 50th Anniversary special to be screened in the UK. It may be the same trailer I saw at Comic-Con.
  • Matt Smith and Steven Moffat interviews, including some pre-recorded stuff.
  • The new Doctor. Live.
  • A simultaneous broadcast on BBC America in the US.

At midnight tonight – about an hour and ten minutes from now – the BBC are going to update their Doctor Who microsite with a post about this special show. That story should include these quotes.

Steven Moffat:

The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the Tardis. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking 12.

BBC Drama Controller Ben Stephenson:

We can’t wait to unveil the next Doctor with everyone live on BBC1 on Sunday night. Amongst all the speculation and betting, there has been lots of fun and intrigue at work as we’ve been using the codename Houdini as a decoy. It’s the biggest secret in showbiz, even those working with the new Doctor on other projects at the moment have no idea they are in the presence of the 12th incarnation.

Audience tickets to the show come with the following instruction:

Please dress to impress as this is a celebration.

It’s going to be a fun evening on Sunday.
